Recipe Ingredients for Toasted Almond-Topped Fish

4 oz tilapia
1/8 cup buttermilk
1/8 cup bread crumbs
1/8 teaspoon dry mustard
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/16 teaspoon pepper
1/8 cup almonds
1/4 tablespoons butter

Recipe Directions for Toasted Almond-Topped Fish

  1. Thaw fish, if frozen. If using fillets, separate fillets, or cut fillets or steaks into 4 serving-size portions. Rinse and pat dry with paper towels. Measure thickness of fish. (To measure thickness of fish fillets or steaks, place a ruler against the thickness part of the fish. Use this measurement to calculate the cooking time for fish. Generally allow 4 to 6 minutes for each 1/2 inch thickness of fish.)

  2. Pour buttermilk into a shallow dish. In another shallow dish combine bread crumbs, parsley, dry mustard, salt, and pepper. Dip fish into buttermilk. Then roll fish in crumb mixture. Place coated fish in a greased shallow baking pan.

  3. Sprinkle fish with coarsely chopped almonds. Drizzle melted butter or margarine over fish. Bake in a 500 degree F oven until golden and fish flakes easily with a fork. Allow 4 to 6 minutes for each 1/2 inch of thickness.

  4. To serve, transfer fish to a warm serving platter; garnish with cucumber slices, endive, and ripe olives, if desired. Serve with lemon wedges, if desired
